Sheet music With the BRIT Awards taking place this evening to celebrate the best that British music had to offer in 2012, it appears the nation is still most proud of The Beatles and Queen with both these bands topping our recent music poll, with 71% respectively. The poll of 2,000 people, showed that when it comes to culture we are more proud of our music industry (64%), than our film (62%) or TV (61%) industries. Read on to find out who else in the music industry the nation holds dear to its heart ... With over 90 years experience between them, The Beatles and Queen have stood the test of time beating competition from relative newcomers Adele (48%) and Oasis (32%). Our research also shows that the bands’ appeal isn’t just limited to the older generations with 70% of 25-34 year-olds being proud of Queen and 68% of this age bracket being proud of The Beatles. While six-time Grammy award winning Adele managed to break into the top three with a score of 48%, it was another well established and older band, Pink Floyd that took fourth place in the poll with 46% of people giving the band the thumbs up. The top chart of bands and musicians Brits are most proud of is as follows:

  • The Beatles (71%)
  • Queen (71%)

  • Pink Floyd (46%)
  • Oasis (32%)

Jamie Ford, Plusnet CEO, said:


With pride being at the centre everything we do and music being one of the most popular things streamed and downloaded on our award-winning broadband, we thought it would be interesting to see which artists the country took pride in. It’s fascinating to see that it's the bands that have been successful over a period of time, rather than the most contemporary artists, which have topped the poll.”
